Summer Sundress

When the weather is warm, there is nothing I love more than wearing a sundress…especially when it is exploding with color! Dresses in the summertime are my go to because they are so easy; just slip it on and you’re ready to conquer the day in style! While shopping at Flutter Boutique I was instantly drawn to this colorful printed number and couldn’t resist taking it home with me. Everything from the colors, the pattern and the handkerchief hem had me in love! What I love most about this dress is how versatile it is. The midi length can easily transition from day to night. For daytime I would go casual with it and pair the dress with a cute pair of sandals while for nighttime I would dress it up with some jewelry and a pair of high wedges. Continue reading

We visited two places during our stay! Keep reading to find out where! Continue reading

1960’s Vintage Pink Coat

A few weekends ago while I was walking around the charming town of Salem, I stumbled upon a vintage shop called The Joyful Artisans. Naturally I had to stop in and take a peak because I adore anything and everything vintage! As I walked through the doors, I was greeted with the warmest, friendliest welcome from the lovely owner Christine Mendyk. Her shop is absolutely beautiful…the walls are covered in every type of hat imaginable, the tables are coated with ridiculously gorgeous jewelry, and the racks of clothes and shoes are filled with absolute treasures. My eyes were darting in every which way looking at all of the merchandise…I was amazed at all of the inventory she had in her space! I could have spent a year in the store and still not see everything that she carried. Making my way towards the back of the store, I spotted something pink. Continue reading

Sun and Stripes in Salem

Last weekend my family and I took a quick trip to Massachusetts to do some exploring and visit family! I’ve been to Massachusetts once before a few summers ago and I fell in love with the state. We vacationed in Boston and the Cape and did a day trip to Martha’s Vineyard. To say it was breathtaking is a complete understatement. This time around we visited Salem and Marblehead. Again, the beauty of the areas we visited mesmerized me. Every place we adventured was surrounded by gorgeous water and boats, the sun was shining bright and the air was warm and breezy. Below are some of my favorite moments from the trip! Continue reading

Black Off The Shoulder Shirt

Off the shoulder shirts are most definitely my favorite trend of this Spring and Summer. The silhouette is dreamy and romantic and shows off the perfect amount of skin…enough to feel flirty but not over exposed. One of my favorite off the shoulder tops is this black one I am featuring in the pictures below. I bought this top from a local boutique where I work and from the second it arrived into the store I knew that I had to have it. I love wearing off the shoulder tops with distressed jeans to balance out the femininity of the shirt with the edginess of the jeans. Continue reading

Easter Outfit Details!

Hey readers! I hope everyone had a lovely Easter if you celebrate and if not a lovely Sunday! Easter is such a special and beautiful holiday and my family looks forward to celebrating it every year. We always get dressed up and go to a nice brunch after church service! My mom always chooses a new place to go for brunch each year to keep things fun and exciting. We like to mix things up! This year we went to a beautiful hotel where my parents got married down the shore. It was so cool to go there because I have only ever seen the hotel in pictures and it was awesome to see my parents reminiscing and hearing adorable stories about their wedding day. After brunch we went down by the ocean to take some pictures and nothing makes me happier than posing in the sunshine and hearing the waves crash in the background! Below are some of my favorite moments from the day and outfit details! Let’s get into it -> Continue reading

A Sunday Well Spent: Friends, Food, and Adventure

Hi readers! I’m always up for going on an adventure and I love to explore! Last week in school during lunchtime I took out my phone, looked at the weather and saw that it was going to be sunny, beautiful and warm on the weekend… I knew that I had to do something. My twin sister Cammie and I picked up our phones immediately and texted our friend Francesca because we haven’t seen her in awhile and she’s always down for a fun time! We planned that we were going to explore a local college campus, do a mini photoshoot, and grab crepes after for a late lunch!
